Chemical attack scares on motorways

Recommended Posts

What do you think about these motorways getting closed due to chemical attacks? (more accurately someone leaving chemicals on the motorway and then calling in a bomb warning)

On the terrorist side, it is actually pretty good, not much effort needed for a massive disruption.  The terrorists could probably cause even more disruptive if they left the chemical in a better location, and called in the bomb scare for a time of maximum disruption (not 4am on a Saturday morning).

 

If/when the perpitrator is caught, the punishment will be derisory compared to if they had actually handled a real bomb.

 

The point I wanted to make with this post is the terrorists can do a lot of economic damage with little effort, and not even that much risk.

 

It is a bit hard to defend against these things, if you have people wondering the streets with opinions that are the exact opposite of western values, that want to make a statement.

The amazing thing is that the scumbags haven't been doing stuff like this for years. The only way to secure a relatively open society is to keep the scumbags out of it.
